Apr 27 - Jun 25, 2017
The exhibition comprises a newly commissioned film and installation exploring how optical technologies of military and colonial design – from lighthouse Fresnel lenses to global satellite navigation systems – both inform and are informed by Western models of knowledge. Taking a critical approach to the ideologies behind the development of these instruments of guidance and surveillance, the artists consider how imperial gestures of discovery, revelation and possession are embedded in associations between seeing and understanding, light projection and enlightenment.

EVAN IFEKOYA
Jul 5 - Sep 2, 2018
Private view Wed Jul 4 6.30pm - 8.30pm
The first solo exhibition in London and a major new commission by London-based artist Evan Ifekoya,whose recent works in film, performance and sound explore intimate and co-authored forms of knowledge production and the radical potential of spectacle. Ifekoya’s ongoing project A Score, A Groove, A Phantom (2015-) explores archives of blackness, sociality and inheritance as they diffract through queer nightlife and trauma. Drawing from their current research around Buddhist practice, speculative fiction and the echo as affective encounter, Ifekoya’s Gasworks commission will focus on polyvocality and the sculptural potential of sound.
